When he finds out that his work superiors host a dinner celebrating the idiocy of their guests, a rising executive questions it when he's invited, just as he befriends a man who would be the perfect guest.
American Maxwell Smart works for a Government spy agency in an administrative capacity. When the agency's head office is attacked, the Chief decides to assign Maxwell as a spy and partners him with sexy Agent 99, much to her chagrin. The duo nevertheless set off to combat their attackers by first parachuting off an airplane and landing in Russian territory - followed closely by an over seven feet tall, 400 pound goon, known simply as Dalip. The duo, handicapped by Maxwell's antics, will eventually have their identities compromised, and may be chalked up as casualties, while back in America their attackers have already planted a bomb that is set-up to explode in a concert.

In one scene, Dalip crashes into an apartment where a Russian mother and son are watching a scene from Batman Begins (2005) on their HDTV. Anne Hathaway would later play "Selina Kyle" in the third entry of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises (2012). See more »
When Agent 23 staples a document to Larabee's forehead, CONTROL has been almost completely rebuilt after the attack and the central globe is working, but in later scenes the reconstruction is less complete and the central globe is not yet repaired. See more »
[when he hears he is promoted to Agent 86]
The cone please...
[he walks to a corner of the safe room and screams:]
Oooh, I am so happy. This is the best day of my life!
You didn't push the button hard enough.
So you all heard me... right.

Being a die-hard fan of the original series (starring Don Adams) I was really looking forward to this. Poor fool me. This is sillier and more brain dead than a monkey's bottom.
To say it was bad would be a severe understatement. It is/was the worst movie (well first 30 minutes of one) I have seen for a long time. I couldn't stand more than the first half hour, preferring to watch my hard drive de-fragment.
I can tolerate bad... bad is O.K., sometimes even cute. BUT up with contrived Hollywood crap (and this has to be the worst in many years) I will not put. This movie is a gross insult to the collective intelligence of humanity! My five year-old daughter could have written better - and she is not even dislexic!!! I'm really tempted to try watching the rest of it, but I'm afraid I have better things to do... like making pizza dough and watching it rise.
What a sad disappointment. No... I'm buggered off! What a swindle! As Mel Brookes once said; "Piece of shirt!"
